Looking for something just a bit different to nibble with your adult beverage? Try Stingrays! There are so many delicious and easy recipes that you can make in a small oven- even a toaster oven. Stingrays are another fun option of what to bring for docktails.

How to Make a Stingray

Preheat oven to 350.

Spray your muffin pan with Pam and get your kitchen scissors out. Crack open a can of crescent rolls and Snip!Snip! the dough into some stingray shapes, placing the shapes into the muffin cups. What’s a stingray shape? Sort of triangular. Considering the triangle perforations on the dough when you roll it out. Then realize that artistic license works best with this recipe. The dough is meant to cover most of the bottom of the muffin cup but overflow out onto the lip of each cup.

The foundation is the most important part of this recipe but there is so much leeway. No two shapes need to be exact.


OK, next get anything to put on top of the dough. That’s right- ANYTHING**. Small hunks of any kind of cheese work great but if you are lucky enough to have brie then that’s even better. Toss a few nuts over the cheese and you’re getting fancy. Sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg and you are a chef! Add marmalade or jelly and it’s heaven. That’s MY favorite but certainly not the only way to fill a Stingray.

Instead of brie and cinnamon here are a few other toppings that have delighted our guests:

  • Salsa or salsa and shredded cheese
  • diced tomatoes, onions and other veggies close to wilting
  • chutney or your favorite flavored marmalade
  • cheese and jalapenos
  • or, to satisfy a sweet tooth, try chocolate chips or chocolate shavings with or without chopped nuts
  • …you get the drift. It’s called refrigerator review!

How long to bake?

Pop the muffin tray into the oven (or toaster oven) for 8 to 10 minutes and you have a most scrumptious appetizer! Watch to make sure the wings don’t get too crispy. The wings curl around the gooey center and help pop them out of the muffin pans quite easily. But let them cool a bit so you don’t burn your tongue!
